It’s official: Luke, Leia and Han Solo will all return for Star Wars: Episode VII

Great news Star Wars fans: All your old favorites will be appearing in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. The new Star Wars film officially announced its cast today and it will include past heroes Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) and Harrison Ford (Han Solo). Other stars of the new movie will include John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. Other returning stars for the film include Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker, who respectively did the voices and/or wore the costumes of C-3PO, R2-D2 and Chewbacca. Although the Star Wars movie franchise fell on hard times after the Jar-Jar Binks-tainted Episodes I through III, Disney is hoping that passing the torch from creator George Lucas over to J.J. Abrams will revive the most popular sci-fi series of all-time.
